Improving Keyword Rankings Metrics Consistency
We pushed a small change today that improves the consistency of our keyword rankings table by only showing rankings from the same day. Previously we would often mix rankings if we were able to return rankings quicker than the normal update period (rankings in the app are pulled from the day previous). This caused some confusion, and was not the best way to display certain metrics like: Keywords Up/Down/Changed etc.
Moving forward this change will allow us to improve upon future enhancement to the keywords table much faster. The only downside to this change is that there will no longer be rankings updated the same day as you might have seen on some keywords previously. The benefit of comparing data always from the same day period seemed like a better option than potentially fresher, but inconsistant data.
New rankings will roll out each day at 12:01am Pacific Standard Time. This data will be from the day previous, as current as we can grab with the limitation of being a full 24-hour period with which we can compare Ups/Downs/#1 rankings consistently.
I hope you like this change, we have a lot more neat features and improvements coming down the pipeline!
As always, if you have any feedback on our platform, or would like to suggest a feature, we would love to hear from you!
